  1. Oh my goodness your blog is so adorable! It makes me dream of summer instead of these blizzard days!

    Thanks so much for linking up! I love your watermelon pink color. That's a favorite color of mine too! The Smokey Mountains sounds like a great place to travel! The paint chip idea is so smart! The person quote is one of my favorites too! Love it!


  2. I love Robert Munsch and Christmas too! I do an author study on Robert Munsch in April. I don't know why but his books just feel like they belong in April...maybe its the April Fools day aspect of the month. :)
